Is it just a forgone conclusion it's not going to happen this year? And if it does somehow happen, is anyone here going?
I think you are spot on with your assessment here on why it hasn't been cancelled. I think they are waiting for Anaheim to make a move to justify them cancelling it.There may be a few possibilities as to why ReedPop hasn’t cancelled SWC in contrast to SDCC which already cancelled their 2020 con. One possibility is that SWC/ReedPop didn’t buy enough insurance to cover a complete cancellation while SDCC did. Thus ReedPop may be holding out for any glimmer of hope. This might seem silly, but most businesses didn’t pay for event insurance that covers SARS/covid breakouts. In addition, in some instances some businesses did pay for covid insurance, and the insurance companies have denied their claims. Either way it’s a time consuming and uphill battle to collect and insurance payments.
A second possibility is that SWC/ReedPop’s insurance policy does cover a cancellation based on this pandemic, but certain markers need to be hit before there’s a payout. E.g., the state has to officially declare that no large gatherings of a certain number of people can occur, etc. if this is the case, then ReedPop would announce cancellation closer to the planned dates.
Another possibility is that the management at ReedPop is delusional. The risk of significant lawsuits arising from infected attendants far outweighs the profit from holding SWC in August.
Are the tickets non refundable. Most places have been refunding if canceled due to the pandemic. I think it's the law right now.
They suspended comic con in tampa but now it's back on. We go every year but we're not going this year. My vacation is the week before my kids go back to school and I have my hotel already booked. Goal is Galaxys edge. I've been waiting 3 years for this.
I think there is a law in place to force them to refund the moneyI sent them a note 2 months ago. My family is in the high risk category (asthmatics and 2members in their 80's) I asked for a refund even. They have not replied. Under the circumstances there should be an exception for those that can afford a little risk vs others who cannot even if they get the greenlight to open.
